Projects & Partnerships

We love raising the bar when it comes to nightlife safety and support a wide range of public, private and community organisations on projects and partnerships. We also work with external sexual violence organisations to deliver our accreditation programme. This ensures our training is run by expert facilitators with in-depth knowledge of the harms of sexual violence in local nightlife and how to prevent it.

We are passionate about the sustainability of frontline services that do incredible work with survivors in a harsh funding climate. In our partner areas, fee after costs enable these local charites to help more survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence.

If you work at a gender justice-focussed charitable organisation with a training team and are interested in delivery partnership, please get in touch!

Attitude Is Everything

Disability-led Charity

Attitude is Everything improves Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with venues, audiences, artists and the music industry. We brought together a team of women and non-binary Deaf and disabled live music fans to workshop their ideas and experiences of safety in nighlife settings. This session was co-facilitated by GNO trainer Alex Duffy and podcaster Joy Addo. From this, we have produced a training video and online content to support our shared aims for access and inclusion for all. We’re committed to a long-term collaboration. This project is funded by ROSA.

DICE

Working with the innovative ticket platform on mission to stamp out touts, we deliver a  group training workshop to a range of managers of live music venues from the DICE community that are interested in increasing their safety standards. We support the DICE team around responding compassionately to disclosures of incidents during their events and signposting effectively.

Phoenix Staffing

Event Staffing Agency

This women-powered promotional staffing agency approached us to help them put worker safety at the heart of their operation. We undertook an overview of their client contracts, policies and handbook for contractors. Then we delivered two interactive workshops about sexual harassment and assault, legal and ethical frameworks, touching on consent and boundaries. We found that the team serving shots at nightclubs were experiencing high levels of unwanted sexual behaviour and weren’t always clear on their rights to safety in the workplace. We wrote two new bespoke policies on sexual harassment and safety to help Phoenix ensure all clients upheld their values and contractors felt empowered to report. We also collaborated on a clear process for managers providing support in the event of an incident, including suitable signposting to specialist services.

Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid

Domestic Violence and Abuse Support Service

We partnered with Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid, a specialist service supporting women and children affected by domestic violence, rape, sexual assault, FGM or forced marriage. We trained BSWA workers to deliver our accreditation programme locally, enabling a pilot cohort of eight city centre clubs and bars to better understand, respond to and prevent sexual harassment and assault on their premises. We then surveyed nightlife users to understand their attitudes to safety locally. An in-depth evaluation is being undertaken by Dr. Zara Quigg of Liverpool John Moores university will demonstrate the impact of our work and its application in different UK nightlife contexts. This partnership is funded by ROSA.

Wild City

Indian and South Asian Music Platform

We worked with The Wild City, India, to develop content for The Selector Pro, a British Council funded programme aimed at supporting women in electronic music in India. We designed two workshops for The Wild City. One was a 1.5 hr Gender Sensitisation workshop aimed at security staff across Delhi, the other was a 2hr Understanding and Preventing Sexual Violence in Nightlife session aimed at local music industry leaders. Both sessions included custom materials and supporting documents to be translated into Hindi in collaboration with local consultants, and we provided support and guidance on the delivery.

“Now I understand how to respect women.”
—Mehrunissa, Security professional who attended the gender sensitisation workshop
